Michael Schumacher is a motorsport icon, and remains the most successful F1 driver ever.
Michael Schumacher remains the world’s most successful Formula 1 driver of all-time. The German brought an almost scientific approach to being an F1 driver, setting new standards for physical and mental fitness. Of course, we all know of his controversies on track, but his talent cannot be denied — he’s a seven times world champion after all. YouTuber Seen Through Glass recently visited the Motorworld Museum and the treasure-trove of classic Schumacher F1 cars within.
The museum itself is in Cologne, Germany and thanks to help from the Schumacher family, Michael’s motorsport legacy is on display in a new exhibit. We often think about Schumacher’s Ferrari dominance as his defining moments, but his motorsport history stretches back much further. The exhibit begins with the German’s go kart and early Formula Ford machine. Success in these junior championships are crucial for a move into F1. Interestingly, his Formula 3 car was powered by Mercedes-Benz, the team he would finish his F1 career with.
